Technical interview tips for Freshers

After clearing the written test Technical Interview is another hurdle to cross. Most of the candidates are filtered in Technical Interview. Questions asked in Technical Interview entirely depend on the interviewer. Imagine the situation in which you are very proficient in Java, but the interviewer does not know Java. Interviewers prefer to ask questions in the subjects which they know well. I should say that luck plays a bit in the Technical Interview.

One more thing to be mentioned here is that, most of the interviewers don't prepare for the interview. As most of the interviewers are 4 to 5 years experience, they might have lost the touch on the subjects. So you should be confident in answering the questions. It is another interesting is that interviewers don't know answers for some of the questions they ask. They will judge the confidence of the candidate by asking this type of questions.

Being confident while answering does not mean that you should argue with the interviewer. If you make a blunder and interviewer finds it, you should be humble enough to accept your blunder.

Most of the interviewers look for passion for learning in you. You should be able to convey to the interviewer that you are eager to learn and you have passion for technology.

Interviewers prefer to ask questions for the subjects or languages mentioned in your resume. You should be proficient in the languages or technologies mentioned in your resume. Many candidates feel that if you putting more languages and technologies in resume will help. But that is not true. Even if you know one or two languages, if you are able to answer most of the questions in those languages you will be selected. So my advice is that you should go through your resume and delete the technologies or languages in which you are not proficient or lost the touch.

Before the interview you should prepare on your resume. You should analyze the possible questions that interviewer can ask while going through your resume and you should prepare for those question. For instance if mentioned leadership skills in your resume, you should be able to tell the interviewer what are the projects or the programs you have done or organized as a leader. Please remember one thing that you have worked on your project for whole 6 months you are the person who knows most about your project more than any one else.

I believe that it is easy for non CSE students to clear the technical interview. This is because if the interviewer asks them questions on advanced topics, they have an excuse to say that they did not study them in their curriculum. Non CSE candidates will be asked questions mostly in C language. So they should be proficient in C language.

Another important thing in Technical interview is project. Some of the interviewers ask 60% of the questions in project only. In answering questions on project non cse students have advantage. This is because interviewer may not have that much knowledge in non software projects. While asking non cse students questions about project, the interviewer will look for confidence of the candidate more than any thing else.

Interviewer may ask for your favorite subject. Every interviewer expects that you should be able to answer most of the questions in at least your favorite subject. You should be thorough with your favorite subject. Below are some the FAQ asked in the languages C, C++ and Java. Try to answer those questions on your own with out seeing the answers. I believe that if you are able to answer these questions you can easily get through the technical interview.
